Suns withdraw qualifying offer to guard Brooks


Posted Jul 7 2012 8:34PM

PHOENIX (AP) -- The Phoenix Suns withdrew their qualifying offer to Aaron Brooks on Saturday, making the point guard an unrestricted free agent.

Brooks was acquired from the Houston Rockets at the 2011 trade deadline and appeared in 25 games with Phoenix, averaging 9.6 points, 4.2 assists and 18.9 minutes. He played in China last season.

Star point guard Steve Nash left Phoenix in a sign-and-trade deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Suns also have a deal in place with free-agent point guard Goran Dragic.

Dragic went to the Rockets in the 2011 deal that sent Brooks to the Suns.
